【第十一观:具足观观世音、大势至】
[11] [The Eleventh Contemplation: Complete Contemplation (On) Contemplator (Of The) World’s Sounds (And) Great Power Arrived]

佛告阿难:「若欲观观世音菩萨者,当作是观。作是观者,不遇诸祸,净除业障,除无数劫生死之罪。如此菩萨,但闻其名,获无量福,何况谛观。

[The] Buddha told Ānanda, ’If [there are] those [who] desire [to] contemplate Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds Bodhisattva, [they] should have this contemplation. Those [who] have this contemplation, [will] not meet all misfortunes, [and will] purify [and] eradicate karmic obstacles, eradicating innumerable kalpas’ transgressions of births [and] deaths. Thus, [of] this Bodhisattva, only hearing his name, obtains immeasurable blessings, furthermore [if] attentively contemplating.

若有欲观观世音菩萨者,先观顶上肉髻,次观天冠。其余众相,亦次第观之。悉令明了,如观掌中。作是观者,名为正观。若他观者,名为邪观。

If [there] are those [who] desire [to] contemplate Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds Bodhisattva, [they should] first contemplate [his] crown above’s uṣṇīṣa, next contemplating [his] heavenly crown. Those all other forms, likewise one after another, [are to be] contemplated of. [With] all enabled [to be] clearly understood, like contemplating [them] within [the] palm. Those having this contemplation, [are] named as [having] right contemplation. If [there are] those [with] other contemplations, [they are] named as evil contemplations.

次观大势至菩萨。此菩萨身量大小,亦如观世音。圆光面各百二十五由旬,照二百五十由旬。举身光明,照十方国,作紫金色。有缘众生,皆悉得见。

Next [to] contemplate [is] Great Power Arrived Bodhisattva. This Bodhisattva’s body height [and] size, [are] also like [those of] Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds.

[His] entire body’s bright light, illuminates [the] ten directions’ worlds, [and] has purple-gold light. Sentient beings [who] have [the] conditions, [will] all attain sight [of it].

但见此菩萨一毛孔光,即见十方无量诸佛净妙光明。是故号此菩萨名无边光。

Only seeing this Bodhisattva’s one pore’s light, immediately seen [are the] ten directions’ immeasurable all Buddhas’ pure [and] wonderful bright lights. Therefore, [the] name [of] this Bodhisattva [is] named Boundless Light.

顶上肉髻,如钵头摩华。于肉髻上,有一宝瓶,盛诸光明,普现佛事。余诸身相,如观世音,等无有异。

从下方金光佛刹,乃至上方光明王佛刹,于其中间,无量尘数分身无量寿佛、分身观世音、大势至,皆悉云集极乐国土。畟塞空中,坐莲华座,演说妙法,度苦众生。
